Schily, what's wrong with adding those words, even if they are redundant?
If your interpretation of the matter is correct (and I believe it is, although IANAL) you are just making extra-explicit what is already permitted by of your license and the GPL, so you aren't granting any extra permission over what can be done with your code - from your point of view nothing changes.
On the other hand, people who think that the situation is currently into a "grey zone" will be relieved by the explicit permission, and we'll put to an end to the whole cdrkit nonsense. Everybody wins.
